  1. Ongoing Colts 2018 draft talk........

    If the problems on the o-line were 100% talent related then i would be more inclined to agree. We'd have the highest drafted guard/center combinations ever but that wouldn't stop the free rushers getting home, players not progressing into a coherent unit and a lack of awareness about where pressure is coming from which all contribute more than talent to the ridiculous sack total.
  2. Ongoing Colts 2018 draft talk........

    Nelson looks a fine player but there's no way we can consider a guard at 3 over a potential defensive game wrecker like Chubb.
  3. Most disappointing colts in the last 20 yr?

    Both Richardson and Johnson were probably the most disappointing. At the time we made those moves I thought they were going to push the team over the edge but in some ways they just held the team back. On a more general view basically every 1st, 2nd or 3rd round pick since 2012 has disappointed to some extent. With the possible exception of Moncrief and Mewhort none of them has made the sort of impact on the team that a player of their status should be expected to make. That probably explains the position we find ourselves in.
  4. Does Moncrief return next season?

    I think that we might be in for a shock if we're expecting him to only get cheap "prove it" offers. Look at the contracts players like Mohamed Sanu and Robert Woods got on the open market. I can't see why Moncrief would be significantly less especially when his poor year can be easily excused by the quarterback and general team performance. If we want to keep him then we're going to have to pay him, especially with the lack of other options available in the market.

    I found this online. How many of the sacks are actually players getting beat because of a lack of physical talent? More of them seem to come down to free rushers not being recognized or having players lined up in obvious mismatches. Even the tackle which caused the Mack fumble was caused by Moncrief trying to block Walden straight down the middle. Who the hell draws that up thinking it's a good idea? Upgrading the talent on the o-line won't change that many of these negative plays unless we draw things up better.
  6. After OL, ILB is the Biggest Need by Far

    I'd say pass rusher is our biggest need, followed by OL and then an athletic ILB.
  7. Thoughts on the Defense:

    The defense seems to be getting better and with the average age of the secondary being pretty low they SHOULD have potential to improve. We still lack the game changers in key positions namely pass rusher and middle linebacker. It's how we fill those gaps which determine how good this group can be.
  8. Jack Doyle is terrible

    If Allen or even Fleener had made the errors Doyle did today they would have been crucified!
  9. Our best defensive player?

    This is a depressing thread! To say these are out best players I doubt more than 1 or 2 of them would be guaranteed to start on a lot of other teams.
  10. How many above avg guys do we have on D?

    There's quite a lot of very average players on the defense. Unfortunately the couple who are probably slightly above average for their position (Hankins and Woods) play roles which have limited game changing ability. Hooker probably has the potential to be above average but the sample size is very small at the moment.
  11. Players listed out Sunday

    That 1 run is fine but you can't just ignore the results of the other 15
  12. Colts @ Los Angeles Rams Game Day Thread

    Every single aspect of this team is bad. There's not even one area you could be vaguely positive about.
  13. Is this our starting O line?

    The Tennessee Titans were widely regarded as having one of the best lines in football last year and they had 2 UDFA's and a 4th round pick playing there. To me it's about what that group as a whole are coached to do rather than needing all 5 players to be studs.
  14. Didn't I read somewhere that Kelly didn't give up a sack last year? He pretty much gave up 2 on that video alone! The first play was my pet hate last year, a tight end trying to block an elite pass rusher one on one. There's no excuses for that sort of organization.
  15. Oline Highlights

    I've got growing confidence in that group. I want to see them grow and develop. Even watching that video it's telling how long Luck holds onto the ball. If we can get the ball out quicker I think we can see big improvements in the effectiveness of the line.
